You hear any type of knocking noises? If not could be the oil pressure sending unit out of calibration or the oil pump pressure relief valve is sticking and also a wiring problem

Hi, thanks for the reply. I don't here any unusual noise. Also, I would like to know if it's safe to drive the car to the nearest motorshop (about a mile) to have a mechanic check the problem. My wife hasn't changed the oil for a year, will a change oil and tuneup solve the problem?
